COLUMBUS, MN. - Scott Altizer, trying Running Aces for the first time this summer, captured both of the trots on the Tuesday night harness racing program. The Michigan horseman, who is currently training a string of seven trotters, won the opening non-winners race with Jailhouse Bride in 2:00, beating favored Switcheroo (Rick Magee) by a head with Realife Go (Tim Roach) completing the trifecta ticket. Altizer also owns the three-year-old Jailhouse Jesse filly who was making her 2014 debut, although she did win $2684 during a winless freshman season.
 
Altizer's True High Voltage shocked the fourth race field with a 1:59 triumph in a bottom conditioned class, paying $79.20 to win and igniting a 10-cent superfecta payout of $1,228. The 13-year-old roan gelding won for the 54th time in his career and the winner's share of the $3000 purse put him just a whisper short of $200,000 in lifetime earnings.
 
Duke Of Hazards (Magee) was second by a length with D D's Tiger (Brandon Jenson) garnering the show dough.
 
Nick Roland and Tim Maier also completed driving doubles on the card.
